Mergers and acquisitions


Meet the team

Norton Rose Fulbright's mergers and acquisitions team is an integral part of the firm's international legal practice, comprised of nearly 1,000 lawyers in ten offices throughout the United States and seven international offices.

The M&A group includes corporate partners in our Austin, Beijing, Dallas, Dubai, Hong Kong, Houston, London, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Munich, New York, Riyadh, San Antonio and Washington, D.C. offices.

We know the importance of every transaction

Every transaction has strategic importance in the business world.

We have handled a range of transactions, from multi-billion dollar mergers in the public markets to the privatization of public companies and from the disposition of closely-held companies to the purchase of divisions of companies.

Clients range from multi-national corporations with sophisticated business development programs to individuals who engage us for the sale of the family business.

Clients benefit from the strategic acumen of the finest M&A lawyers in the business.

We know teamwork

Drawing from the best-equipped M&A lawyers, backed by strong supporting benches from each service area, we meet the client's goals for each transaction by coordinating a team effort.

The firm's M&A team executes all aspects of any buy-side and sell-side deals: from due diligence to disclosure, regulatory planning and analysis, financing, tax structuring and closing.

We know the international marketplace

The mergers and acquisitions team's experience with transactions around the globe has given us insight into effective means of addressing additional challenges and risks associated with international transactions.

In structuring and negotiating the agreements and contracts comprising the deal, the M&A lawyers focus on helping clients achieve their objectives.

Particularly in international deals where agreements may be governed by the laws of different jurisdictions—sometimes in several languages—it is essential that legal counsel be capable of addressing all the issues simultaneously, and frequently, under tight deadlines.

Much of M&A's success begins with staffing and deploying the right team and resources to execute a deal in the most cost-effective manner.
